Lions Announce Wednesday Update On Jameson Williams

Lions quarterback Jameson Williams.

After displaying one of the NFL's top scoring offenses through the first four weeks of the season, the Detroit Lions have scored just six combined points over their last two games. 

While they did play two tough opponents in New England and Dallas and have dealt with a myriad of injuries recently, many Lions' fans are wondering when the offensive side of the ball will pick back up. 

Unfortunately, it appears help may be coming later rather than sooner, as it was reported today that rookie wide receiver Jameson Williams will likely miss "at least" another month while recovering from his ACL rehab. 

"Campbell said it'll at least be another month before rookie WR Jameson Williams returns from ACL rehab," Detroit Lions senior writer Tim Twentyman said Wednesday. 

The news comes at a difficult time for Detroit wide receivers, as two of their top options coming into the season have suffered injuries in recent weeks. 

DJ Chark (ankle), who the Lions signed last offseason, was just placed on injured reserve Saturday. While he does hope to play again this season, Chark won't see the field for several more games.

Star second-year receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown was removed from Sunday's game against Dallas with concussion-like symptoms, although he did clear concussion protocol this week and is expected to play in Week 8. 

The Detroit Lions are looking to snap a four-game losing streak this weekend when they take on the Miami Dolphins.
